Game day update: ESPN is projecting Tyreek Hill with 14.8 points, Demarcus Robinson with 10.3 points, and Mecole Hardman with 8.3 points in PPR leagues. It’s a snowy day in Denver, but if the wind remains relatively tame, the snow should not create significant issues for the passing game.
When you have a quarterback like Patrick Mahomes throwing the ball, there’s a lot of fantasy value wrapped up in the wide receivers. That’s certainly been the case for the Kansas City Chiefs. The question for their Week 6 showdown with the Denver Broncos is which ones belong in your lineup.
Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs WRs Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson
Hill is the clear No. 1 in this group. He’s coming off his worst game of the season, a three-catch, 20-yard effort. However, that’s not really his fault; the Chiefs just didn’t need him while they were gashing the Bills on the ground. Prior to that outing, he had a touchdown in every game he’s played so far. He should be back among the top receiving options in fantasy this week.
With Sammy Watkins out of action, the Chiefs have been switching back and forth between Hardman and Robinson as their No. 2 receiver, though Robinson has definitely emerged as the most viable option. He had 69 yards on five catches last week compared to zero for Hardman. Robinson is a decent option for a flex spot in most lineups.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Tyreek Hill and Demarcus Robinson. Sit Mecole Hardman.
